It can be frustrating and embarrassing to be charged with a DWI. You will face criminal penalties, your driver’s license will be revoked, your license plates may be impounded, and your vehicle can be forfeited.
These feelings can be exasperated by having to tell your employer and loved ones about what has happened. It is not uncommon for people to feel overwhelmed in this situation and simply do nothing, hoping that time will remedy everything.
Unfortunately, doing nothing is the worst thing you can do. Minnesota law gives you 30 days to file a challenge to your license revocation and the criminal proceedings can move just as fast. This means you need to take prompt action to hire an attorney to obtain and review the law enforcement file to ensure your rights are protected. The best course of action varies greatly from case to case, and it is important to have an attorney review the facts of your case in a prompt manner to ensure every option remains available to you.
